The last show with Keith and Donna was Feb. 17, 1979, so maybe you got your dates mixed up.
About to turn this show on now though. No rating from me yet.

It slipped by me that China Cat > Know You Rider was absent, post break, until 1979 (ok, there was that one time in 1977). Weird.
I discovered that fact exploring how many times China > Rider opened a show. Only 5, post break. Three of those within the week plus two days of this show. It seemed unusal to me, and it is.
I also learned that although it seemed to me like a pretty common set of songs, it was not played as frequently as I might have guessed. Once they picked it back up in 1979, they played it until the end, just not every third show.
Ok, last musing for now, by the mid-eighties the pairing was predominantly a second set offering, whereas prior to that point it was played in both sets about equally.

A hot China>Rider begins a start-to-finish excellent show. Jamming Cassidy and Loser follow and bring the energy level even further up. Rest of first set is solid, definitely setting the table for a mind-blowing second set.
An 18-minute Shakedown gets completely jammed out by the boys. Top 10 for sure. Passenger keeps things rolling and the Ramble on Rose that follows is equally energetic and jammy. Estimated>Eyes is absolutely wonderful, and make sure you're wearing headphones towards the end of Eyes and into Drums>Space. Your ears will be treated to a very interesting Spacey jam at the end of Eyes and a fun drums sequence. Post Space is OK...Wharf Rat starts out good, but then this source switches over to AUD. The AUD is not terrible, but Jerry's voice is very muffled in the recording. From there on out the show is a bit off, but that is likely due to the sound.

26 years later for me too
Wow, this is my first time on archive.org and obviously I will be spending a lot of time here. I can't believe I found my first Dead show! We we smushed down in the second row -- way too many people were on the floor. I was 16 and couldn't believe what I walked into. By the time the band left China and headed into Rider, I was hooked for good!

26 years later the memories are rekindled
I was there that night and shakedown was indeed awesome. During Ramblin Rose Jerry was actually moving around quite a bit. I still don't get the duck joke....
